For example including a firm monthly base rate, maintenance costs and minimum monthly copies to be included?
1.APlease do not edit the pricing pages.
2.QIt appears on the pricing page that the monthly minimum’s are very high based on the products requested, can you please confirm the recommended volumes you want the pricing to be based on per device?
2.APlease price per the pricing pages. Some monthly estimates do seem high. This way everybody is bidding apples to apples.

8.AThe County’s position is not to lease. Not sure if the question is relevant?
9.QA lot has changed with digital devices in the past few years and security has become more and more of a concern for local government, do you require that security kits (i.e. image overwrite and data encryption) be included in the configuration of the proposed devices to protect the Counties information?
9.APlease price that out separately.
10.QMost County environments are usually mixed with both PC’s and MAC’s, do you require the vendors to include Post Script drivers as part of the configuration of the devices to prevent any additional costs to the County once awarded?
10.APlease price that out separately.
11.QSince scanning is included as part of the overall response, are we to include what the cpc is on scanning on the multifunction devices?
